  • Breville 800es intermittent fault

    3 year old 800es (reservoir slides in from front).
    Routinely and recently de-scaled. Probably a non-issue with Gold Coast water anyway.

    Symptons vary and appear to be electronic not electric and not physical components like pump (but you tell me).
    Sometimes powers on sometimes not.
    Sometimes primes the thermoblock sometimes not.
    Sometimes heats sometimes not.
    Sometimes pumps espresso/hot water/steams sometimes not.
    Always steams and/or pumps hot water if it pumps espresso and vice-versa.
    When it goes it keeps going until I stop it.

    In short, it typically fails somewhere during the process just not always at the same place. And failures can occur in any order.  Very occassionally it works correctly and keeps workng until the tank needs refilling.

    Are there any "safety cut out" switches Im missing ?

    There are not obvious issues inside. No leaks, no obvious cooked circuitry, no broken or diconnected wiring to be seen.

    No I havent directly spoken to a Breville service agent.

    Similar issues have already been posted by others but solutions few and far between. To those CSers who received a PM from me re your own posted Breville 800 issues, did anyone find a solution?

    All and any help/advice accepted.

    Hi Dabbler,
    I think you hit the nail on the head.
    It sounds like a faulty PCB (main board) would be the common denominator that would control those functions.

    Others may concur (others may not)

      Thanks Phil,
      Yep a stuffed PCB is/was the last thing I care/d for really.

      Do you know if they are the same for all 800s or did Breville change them over time? No real identifiers externally except 800ES /A. I guess Ill have to crack it open (again) and check the PCB for serial/production numbers.

      And does anyone want to donate a working PCB. There must be hundreds of 800s past the point of no return for other reasons. This one or any proceeds from its sale, is destined for charity so Id like to get it working again.

      Any thoughts from others ?
